I was asked to make the wedding cake and groom’s cake for the wedding of some friends’ daughter. They had already picked the design for the wedding cake but their other baker had to pull out. They also wanted the Stormtroopers and Lego topper for the groom’s cake, which again limited my scope for design.
The drive to the venue was nerve-wracking as it was a very hot day and I was worried about the daisies. I had cut them out of sugarpaste to make them more edible, but it meant that they were much more fragile. There was a high rate of attrition while attaching them to the cake, but actually only a couple of them were damaged in transit.
I transported the cake in two parts and added more daisies to complete the design when we arrived.
Vanilla, chocolate and lemon cakes for the wedding cake, chocolate cake for the groom’s cake.
